THE BOOK OF MORMON
Mormon invites the Lamanites of the latter days to believe in Christ, accept his gospel, and be saved—All who believe the Bible will also believe the Book of Mormon. About A.D. 385
now, behold, I would speak somewhat unto the aremnant
of this people who are spared, if it so be that God may give unto them my words, that they may know of the things of their fathers; yea, I speak unto you, ye remnant of the house of Israel; and these are the words which I speak:
Know ye that ye are of the ahouse
Know ye that ye must come unto repentance, or ye cannot be saved.
Know ye that ye must lay down your weapons of war, and delight no more in the shedding of blood, and take them not again, save it be that God shall acommand
Know ye that ye must come to the aknowledge
of your fathers, and repent of all your sins and iniquities, and bbelieve
in Jesus Christ, that he is the Son of God, and that he was slain by the Jews, and by the power of the Father he hath risen again, whereby he hath gained the cvictory
over the grave; and also in him is the sting of death swallowed up.
And he bringeth to pass the aresurrection
of the dead, whereby man must be raised to stand before his bjudgment
And he hath brought to pass the aredemption
of the bworld
, whereby he that is found cguiltless
before him at the judgment day hath it given unto him to ddwell
in the presence of God in his kingdom, to sing ceaseless praises with the echoirs
above, unto the Father, and unto the Son, and unto the Holy Ghost, which are fone
God, in a state of ghappiness
which hath no end.
Therefore repent, and be baptized in the name of Jesus, and lay hold upon the agospel
of Christ, which shall be set before you, not only in this record but also in the record which shall come unto the Gentiles bfrom
the Jews, which record shall come from the Gentiles cunto
For behold, athis
for the intent that ye may cbelieve
that; and if dye
believe that ye will believe this also; and if ye believe this ye will know concerning your fathers, and also the marvelous works which were wrought by the power of God among them.
And ye will also know that ye are a aremnant
of the seed of Jacob; therefore ye are numbered among the people of the first covenant; and if it so be that ye believe in Christ, and are baptized, first bwith
water, then with fire and with the Holy Ghost, following the cexample
of our Savior, according to that which he hath commanded us, it shall be well with you in the day of judgment. Amen.
